My name is Natalie and I love anything to do with card/paper. I have been a papercrafter for many years now and I never get bored playing with all the wonderful products available. I've been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 35years now and we are still very much in love with each other as the first day we met each other. We have 3 wonderful children and 5 gorgeous grandchildren so we have lots to be thankful for. Since joining Stampin' Up! in 2018 I've grown so much in confidence with myself and I even tackle technology, which for me is a huge step to have taken, but I'm getting there slowly.

Fathers' day card with Country club bundle - mini catalogue 2020

Good morning all, and welcome to another Team Scrimpy blog hop. 
This months theme is Mini catalogue faves. I have actually had quite a few faves and am sad to see them go, as we approach a new catalogue launch, which if you love craft as much as I do, then this is probably a very exciting time for you all.
One of my favourite bundles that are sadly retiring is the  'Country club'. It is an amazing bundle for men and women so it's a very versatile bundle to have.
With Fathers' day fast approaching us here in the UK I thought what better bundle to use for an amazing card for all those golfing dads out there. You can also get all the matching papers, twine and elements to match this bundle, there is also a matching embossing folder which is the only piece in this whole suite that is carrying over and it's called 'Absolutely argyle'.
Anyway I think I've gone on long enough now and it's probably time to stop talking and get on with the card, hope you enjoy xx
Please don't forget when you've finished looking at my blog to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it. Also don't forget to hop over and look at the other ladies blogs on the links all below my post thanks.

This is a fun fold card which I've CASE'd from a lovely lady called Karen Titus. I've changed the measurements that were used and I've converted them all in to cm as I know lots of you like to use cm instead of inches.
The thing I love the most about this card is that it's actually made using 1 sheet of dsp and a small amount of card.

Materials needed:

1pc  - 12" x 12" country club dsp (151314)  cut to 28cm x 28cm

Thick whisper white card (140490)

2pc - 10.5cm x 10cm inside of card
1pc - 5.5cm x 5.5cm for front card panel
Scrap piece for die cutting element for card front

Night of navy card (106577)

1pc - 5cm x 5cm for front card panel

Crushed curry card (131288)

Scrap piece for die cutting element for card front

Night of navy stamp pad (147110)
Poppy parade stamp pad (147050)
Garden green stamp pad (147089)
Multi purpose liquid glue (110755)
Clubhouse bundle (153816)
Country club twine combo pack (151318)


The first thing you need to do is fold your dsp in half corner to corner and give it a reall good burnish with your bone folder to make a nice crisp edge.
Now as shown in the pictures above you need to score away from your creased edge at 10.8cm , I've used my stampin trimmer as I find it easier to score when you need a small measurement like .8cm , just make sure that both the top and the bottom of your dsp are lined up with the 10.8cm otherwise you will score wonky.
Now with the creased edge of dsp up the top you are going to score at 8.2cm and 14cm in from each end. 
The next step is to fold and burnish all of your score lines and give them all nice crisp edges. You now need to cut away the 2 small triangles that are shown in the picture above.
Fold the inner creases in to form valley folds and then fold the other creases back over to form mountain folds (when opened back out). You then need to take the triangles at the ends of your folds and fold them out to form a square (as below. It looks a bit like a birds beak). You will form a square on either side.

These squares sit one behind the other, and the top part of your dsp will then be folded one piece to the front tucking into your front square, and the other piece will fold over the back.
You can now do all your stamping onto your whisper white card pieces, glue them to your garden green pieces, glue 2 of the triangle pieces of dsp that you cut out from main piece into 2 of the corners (as shown in pictures), and then glue into the middle of your card.
The front of your card has the Night of navy piece glued to the top of the Whisper white piece and then glued to the front square of your card.
Glue the 3 x crushed curry die cut pieces together to form a thick die cut, which stands out when glued to the front piece, the sentiment piece is stamped and then just part of it is die cut from it and glued flat inside your crushed curry piece.
Finally I used a piece of the garden green twine from the combo pack to tie the card shut. This will fit in a 5" x 5" envelope.

Hope you enjoyed the card I think it makes a nice change to have a card to give that isn't just made from card. You can if you like place a piece of card onto the inside of your back triangle flap, which will enable it to stand up, when closed.

If you have any questions about the card or products I've used to make this card please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks so much for stopping by, shall look forward to next months blog hop until then take care stay safe and keep crafting.

Big crafty hugs
